Beginning today, extended office hours will be available at the UT Erlanger Urology office at Erlanger East Hospital. Every Monday, from 5-9 p.m., specialists will be available to treat those needing urological care – including walk-ins and new patients.
“We are aiming to help the patient population that, because of busy schedules, is unable to access adequate urological care,” said Dr. Amar Singh, urologist and chairman, Department of Urology at Erlanger Health System. “We can treat their issues without the patient going to the ED, and maybe help alleviate some of the stress put on our emergency rooms.
From the typical to the complex, fellowship-trained physicians are available to treat a variety of urological conditions, including cancers, overactive bladder, pelvic floor issues and men’s sexual health concerns.”
Erlanger East will also host several health seminars with medical specialists from UT Erlanger Urology group. The Men’s Health seminar and Overactive Bladder Clinic seminars are two classes that address chronic issues.
The Men’s Health seminar focuses on erectile dysfunction in an open forum facilitated by Dr. Anand Shridharani. Classes for Men’s Health will take place on March 15 and June 14.
The Overactive Bladder (OAB) Clinic offers information on symptoms, treatment options and lifestyle changes. Attendees will also hear from a patient who will share her experience with OAB, and a question and answer session will be at the end of the session. The next class is April 3.
All seminars are free. Registration is required. To register for either seminar, call 423-778-LINK (5465). Erlanger East UT Erlanger Urology is located at 1755 Gunbarrel Rd. Suite 209. For more information about the practice, or to schedule an appointment, call 423-778-8478.
